The first chapter highlights the importance of acknowledging religious realities and builds up to the second and strongest chapter, which emphasizes the central role psychology plays in religious violence. The chapter on apocalypticism looks at exaggerated but repressed religious sentiments and leads to a chapter on the grey area between religion and politics. The last chapter…delves into sexual violence and gives a nod to the gendered component of violence in religion. Selengut provides a holistic, up-to-date examination of religion and violence, a deadly combination.
Summing Up: Recommended.
Lower- and upper-division undergraduates; general readers. It fruitfully highlights the multi-dimensional nature of the relationship between religion and violence, and compels the reader to consider the reality that a single action the decision to engage in an act of violence for a religious reason—should be considered through a variety of lenses. The most recent edition also deserves credit for correcting a problematic emphasis on Judaism, Christianity, and Islam that was evident in previous versions.
The book remains important and worthwhile because it offers one of only a few interdisciplinary analyses of the relationship between religion and violence. He brings psychological perspectives to bear in helping us understand how marginalized people, adopting religious images of divine conquest, engage in acts of public violence out of a sense of spiritual mission. This will be a helpful volume both for classroom use and public discussion.
